Celebrating An Empowered Playmate And “Nerd” Too!
Some of the most popular Playboy Playmates went on to have lengthy careers in film and TV – some just dabbled a bit before moving into other successful careers.
My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” has the story of Lisa Welch!
She was born on November 11, 1960 in Aberdeen, Maryland. She lived in a number of different cities while growing up, but was discovered early on by Playboy!
She was chosen as Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in September 1980 when she was just 19 years old!
Lisa began appearing in a variety of films in small parts, like this Mel Brooks comedy:
Her biggest hit came when she portrayed stuck-up sorority girl “Suzy” in this 1984 hit:
She next made a guest appearance on the Matt Houston series in an episode called “The Centerfold Murders.”
An online bio says she and her husband have nine kids! That could explain the nearly ten year gap between acting roles – she had a small part in the straight-to-video thriller “Night Fire.”
An unhappy married couple finds themselves at the mercy of a vagabond couple who appear at their door claiming their car broke down. They are really hired by the husband to warm up his wife; but things quickly turn ugly.
Shannon Tweed starred in this “skinamax” thriller – she was a big star in these direct-to-video eerotic films of that era – see all of Shannon’s raciest films here:
Bravo to Lisa for her career in film – and love of wine – cheers!
She’s one of the many empowered Playmates I’ve covered here:
